Hosted by Mike and Molly star Billy Gardell, Monopoly Millionaires' Club takes everything you love about the multi-state lottery game and turns it into the ultimate, fast-paced game show.

GAME-ON: 13 Fights Every Family Gets Into While Playing Monopoly

The show is taped in front of a live audience comprised of lottery game winners who have won a trip to Las Vegas to participate. Every episode five members of the audience will be randomly selected to play games based on a popular Monopoly theme (Community Chest, Electric Company, etc.) and could win $100,000 each game.

The twist? The audience is divided into groups corresponding to classic Monopoly game pieces, such as boot, wheelbarrow, top hat, etc. Each player on stage will split their winnings with members of the audience who share their same game piece. Each contestant can choose to keep their winnings from the "mini games" or risk losing it all, including the audience section share, for a chance to land on "GO" and win $1 million.

Watch the exclusive clip to see the game in action!

Monopoly Millionaires' Club premieres Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29 on Game Show Network. Check your local listings here.
